Art in Remembrance Exhibition
The Rev. Claire Lording has invited us to hold another Art in Remembrance Exhibition at the Abbey in the weeks immediately before and after Remembrance Sunday. This early notice should give those who wish to exhibit plenty of time to create appropriate artwork - it is open for new works only - i.e. nothing shown last year.
The theme remains the same - Remembering the victims of all wars. The exhibition is open to ALL in all forms of art - painting, graphic art, photography, poetry, sculpture etc. The artist does not have to be a Pershore Arts member. Last year’s event was small but well supported by the public.
If you have any questions or wish to discuss, please contact Peter Horsburgh at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the mailing list.

Members who enjoy photography are welcome to come along and share their work on the month’s theme or any other work.

February’s theme is “Night-time” and will take place on Thursday 21stFebruary.
Members who enjoy sketching are welcome to join our Sketchbook meetings. These are informal and friendly gatherings where we share recent work, do some sketching and chat about all things art over a drink or two.
